Abstract
A novel category of virus belongs to corona virus family found at very first time at Wuhan, China in December
2019. It was mentioned that COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019 name given to this novel virus) caused by
SARS- CoV- 2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2). Since then virus has spread across the
globe at very high rate and increasing number of confirmed cases and disease related mortality are being
reported. Drugs are needed for prophylaxis and treatment of COVID-19. But there is no current effective
strategy to prevent the spread of disease and to treat infection with COVID-19, though several antiviral and
immunomodulation drugs are being tested and some preliminary research studies and clinical trials reported
significant effect of some drugs to managing patients of COVID-19. Treatment guidelines for COVID-19 also
vary between countries. Therefore, more evidence based multicentre clinical trials need to be done to ensure the
safety and efficacy of these drugs. Relevant publications both in journals, web, newspaper, and magazine from
various database such as PubMed, Scopus, ProQuest, CINHAL and Google scholar searched to visualize
publications from inception to 15th June 2020 were searched and manually filtered. This review summarizes
evidences regarding treatment strategies that are being tested for the prevention and management of COVID -
19.

Key words: chemical drugs; corticosteroids; COVID -19; hydroxychloroquine; lopinavir; SARS-CoV- 2; treatment strategies
